    Judge JP6



    Our mission is to serve the people of Tarrant County, Precinct Six, with efficient justice for all. We will treat all persons with integrity, fairness, respect and provide service to all in the most courteous and expedient way possible.

    The Texas Supreme Court issued its 25th Emergency Order related to the CDC Eviction Moratorium effective September 17, 2020. Landlords must include in an original, amended, or supplemental petition information related to the CARES Act, as well as whether a Declaration under the CDC Moratorium was provided by the tenant. If a Declaration has been provided to the landlord, the court may not proceed unless the landlord files an affidavit with the court contesting the Declaration. The court will then hold a hearing to determine the next steps. The tenant must file the Declaration to the court and serve it on the plaintiff.

    The 25th Emergency Order expires on December 15, 2020.

    The CDC signed a Federal Eviction Moratorium on September 1, 2020,  on all residential evictions effective September 4 through December 31, 2020 requiring landlords to file a sworn statement with eviction petitions stating if the tenant has filed a Declaration that will halt the pending proceeding until the expiration of the moratorium. Please click here to read the CDC Moratorium and for required documents with each new filing.

    Effective September 1, 2020, the jurisdictional limit increased to $20,000.00 in Justice Courts. Please review the Justice Court Rules to ensure proper filing of your lawsuit.
